Join Us in Our Work to Bless, to Praise, and to Preach
Thank you for visiting this modern preaching tool we call the World Wide Web and the home pages of the Dominican Friars, Province of St. Albert the Great. Thank you especially for taking a moment to discover the ways you can partner with us in our work by sharing of your treasure.
When St. Dominic founded the Order of Preachers I doubt he envisioned such a tool as domcentral.org. He did, however, know that the important work of preaching the gospel would take more than the few men and women who followed him nearly 800 years ago. He also knew that it would take resources given by others to complete the daunting task of preaching the Gospel in all corners of the globe.
While we won’t ask you to follow us to those far-away lands, we do ask for your help as we teach and preach across the heartland of America and, truth be told, in some of those far-away places. Your financial support is critical to our work as we educate young friars who will later serve a lifetime, as we support the many friars who have already served a lifetime, and as we do so much in between.
I invite you to read in the following pages of the many ways you can support the work of the friars of this Province of St. Albert the Great. Your gifts to Provincial Funds, our annual fund, have immediate impact. Your Planned Gifts will change the face of our work for as long as we endure, and as you can see, that is a long time! And, periodically, we may ask you to participate in the vision of the Province through a gift to a Capital Campaign.
In the end, none of what we do would happen without the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the dedication, love, and fortitude of the nearly 200 friars of the Province, and, of course, your support. Please give as best you can. We assure you, what you give will be put to the very best work of preaching the Gospel.
Thank you for your generosity and God bless you for sharing.
The Very Rev. Charles E. Bouchard, OP
Provincial, Province of St. Albert the Great
